The Basset Fauve de Bretten, also known as the fawn-colored Britney Bassett, is a small, stocky, rough-coated hardy dog that is energetic and edgy for its size. Fauv gets on well with children and other pets. Training and socialization is a must or fights can result in mischief. Not a barking nuisance, though, as you know a rabbit walks through the yard, as they then "sound" and chase the hound. Happy roaming the area of this breed, as he is placed next to the family on the couch. Basset was developed. How the Basset breed was formed is a matter of debate, but is most likely the shortest for extended periods of time.
By the 19th century, hound packs were exclusively made of bassets to hunt rabbits, har, fox, roe deer and wild boar. Although it was rumored that both Grad and Basset were nearly extinct during World War II, this was confirmed by leading French Fauve specialist Dame. The French club du Fauve de Breitgain's F. Corbue breed continued to be strong in popularity by French hunters.
The breed is still a popular, versatile hunting hound and family dog in France, gaining popularity in the United States and a breed of clubs in many countries.
